Description: Not merely another set of first recordings of late German Romantic chamber works, this new release features two unusual instruments - the violotta (one octave below the violin) and the cellone (a fourth below the cello) - by the 19th century instrument maker Alfred Stelzner (all the regular instruments played here are by him as well) and the booklet contains a wealth of information about them and their maker. Collectors will know what to expect from Draeseke; Krug has a highly lyrical style and makes particularly striking use of both unusual instruments in his 1896 sextet. The Summit Chamber Players.
